This light copper single hop India Pale Ale is brewed only with the Fuggles hops. It has a smooth, dry, and crisp flavor with floral aroma and apple plum palate.

Golden-orange colour. Moderate hop aroma. Pleasant bitterness throughout. Some pine flavours with hints of cedar. Ok, rather one dimensional, but I guess that is the concept of the one hop IPA.

Not bad IPA. I taste apple, caramel. I thought it was a bit light in the hops.

a very good ipa. this ipa was strong and flavorful with out being offensive (overly hoppy). This might actaully be good enough to casually drink.

Pale orange-copper. decent white head. Caramel, orange, & apricot on the nose. Medium body. Orange bubblegum & apricot flavour. Good malt background. Finish is long & somewhat earthy.

Decent English style IPA. Definitely more consevative than the big US IPAs.

This IPA is hoppy, yet not as "flowery" as many others. Probably among the more drinkable IPAs I've tried.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2003 What a strange IPA; I really like it; the uniqueness is so alluring. The malt is apparent, its well roasted, and healthily balanced with the hopps. The hopps adds dryness to the beer, a citric, oily dryness, hint’s of pine, a slightly woody aroma and flavor. The bitterness is fitting for my tastes. I was pessimistic going into drinking this IPA, but it turned out to be a pleasant experience.
I’m not a hop-head but beers like this may convert me.

Not too bad. Seemed to have hints of malt and some fruityness I couldn't put my finger on. Slight bitter finish and if there is such a thing as an "afterfinish" a hint of oilyness but not bad at all. Good refreshing drink that I'm not sorry for getting. Poured a copper color with little head but nice lacing along the way. Not the best IPA by a long shot, but not the worse either.

Thanks to Mabdoney for this bottle. Well I guess fuggles hops makes a beer bitter. That's what happened to this beer. Bitterness wasn't bad in the beginning but at the end it became a little overpowering which made me not enjoy this beer that much.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2003 Nice amber body with a hoppy and malty nose. Having never had singled out Fuggles hops, I was not sure how it was. I must say that the taste was phenomenal. Crisp body and a malty but hoppy finish. Smooth and tasty beer. Can't wait to have this again. Great beer!
